What was shared in this episode:

This episode is the sixth of the series where Ariane reads from “The Way We Came” by Harry Palmer.

Ariane Leanza Heinz is a vocal coach and artist consultant based in Zürich. She decided to do the Avatar course in 2001, when she felt her life was not moving forward. She had dreams of being an artist, writing songs and performing, but she was stuck in her limitations and seemed to go in circles. She tried many techniques, as she loves exploring and is an adventurer. After her Avatar course, her life started to unravel in the direction she chose. She released her CD, gave concerts and built a successful vocal practice in New York City.

Since then she uses the Avatar exercises to break out of her own boundaries and she realizes quickly all the goals she sets for herself.

The natural thing to do was to share this training with her friends and family, so she decided to take the training to become a Master and has been delivering the course since then.

“Every course brings me ten steps forward, I grow as a person, mother and teacher, it not only benefits me, but all the people around me.”

Excerpt from the book:

In the foregoing chapter, I made the following points: EXCUSES are responsibility limiters (blame avoiders) that convey the message that one is not at fault. The most acceptable excuses are explanations that people will find plausible. MANAGEABLE CAUSES are beliefs, thoughts, and actions that you can do something about; you can control them. – Harry Palmer
